1-54 New York returns this May 2024!

1-54 Contemporary African Art Fair is thrilled to announce the return of 1-54 New York, from 1-4 May 2024, it’s largest edition to date! Now in its 10th year, this edition will see 1-54 widen its dilating imprint upon the city by relocating to Chelsea, in the heart of Manhattan.

The fair will be held at the Starrett-Lehigh Building, at 255 11th Avenue. For nearly a century, the building has stood as a central point on Manhattan’s west side, acting as both a professional and cultural focal point in Chelsea, neighbouring vibrant hubs such as the Hudson Yards.

This year will bring together 30+ exhibitors presenting the work of over 70 artists from the continent and its diaspora. It is an event not to be missed!
